About Inclusive

As part of ASI’s mission to strengthen and inspire the entire campus community, we are proud to offer a facility and programs that are accessible for all abilities. We strive to provide inclusive recreational programs for people with cognitive, physical, and sensory disabilities to expand their access to opportunities that promote health, wellness and greater functional independence. We do this by developing, delivering and evaluating innovative barrier-free programs in which both people with disabilities and their non-disabled peers may participate, collaborate and recreate.

The SRWC aims to provide an inclusive atmosphere to those with both visible and invisible disabilities. It is our goal to promote health and wellness for the entire campus community, and we believe that providing an inclusive atmosphere is all of our responsibility. We work hard to ensure that all students feel welcome to participate and that reasonable accommodations will be made for the comfort and wellbeing of all students wishing to utilize the SRWC. Students with temporary or permanent disabilities are welcome to call or visit ahead for accommodations in group fitness, or utilize adaptive equipment already provided, such as Hand cycles during existing Spin class and the wheelchair lift for any Aquatics program.

What does inclusive mean? Inclusive means welcoming anyone and everyone to an open atmosphere. No matter of your visible or invisible disabilities. 

What is the inclusive program? The Inclusive program is a series of events to give abled and disabled bodies a chance to participate in sporting events. It’s to “level the playing field” in order to gain an understanding and to gain a different perspective on how disabilities are perceived. 

What does V.I.P stand for? Here at the SRWC, V.I.P stands for Very Inclusive Person. To be a V.I.P, you have participated in at least a certain amount of Inclusive events throughout the semester. 

Will I offend anybody by participating? No, the SRWC is a welcoming facility. This program is here for abled and disabled bodies to participate in a safe environment. By participating, it helps you get a perspective of what it feels like to have a disability. It’s not easy, but by understanding, it can change your mind.
